Morning

Pretty good day at work yesterday.  That rather nasty reviewer had nice things to say about my recent documentation, so hopefully she won't be a concern for much more. 

Still have problems with people not responding, we'll have to see if that becomes an issue.  As long as it doesn't my urge to leave will decrease a bit.  But I'll keep looking, economy may not be as good next year so this year is probably a good time if I want to switch jobs

Went out to dinner with J last night.  He was fairly late but not as late as he expected to be.  Arrived a bit late to choir practice but thankfully didn't miss much

Grocery shopping tonight, other than that should be a normal day

Weather is starting to turn cooler again, looks like temps will vary a bit but will steadily warm starting sometime next week

Good morning.

Hope step-mom is doing better, herring.

Wow, Stars, you and hubby are Nannie's only contact with the outside world. Besides the two of you, she really doesn't seem to engage with others.

Meeting a friend for coffee this afternoon.

The rain returns today.

We have had a lovely stretch of rain-free days, but it is about to end.

Sigh.

Safe travels to all.

Good morning-

Had a very busy day yesterday, but still managed to get out only 20 minutes late.  Tonight will be another story.  We have too many patients booked for allergy shots at the end of the day, plus today's shot giver is notoriously slow, which means we will all stay late.  We really need to put limits on this scheduling. There's a reason why they are only supposed to book 4 patients for the last time slot.  Done venting and complaining.

We are supposed to get a Nor'easter tonight.  Fortunately, temps are above freezing so it should just be rain, but there's supposed to be very high winds.  Lucy the rabbit will be back in the basement.  

Joe-I hope you don't take it personally that people don't return calls.  Still, it must be frustrating.  I absolutely hate talking on the phone, so I would not be good at your job.  Do you have any more interviews scheduled?

Hi Nel-More rain...just what you don't need.  Enjoy your time with your friend today.

Herring-Hope step-mom is feeling better and her appetite picks up.

Ted-How are you doing?  Please know we all continue to think of you.

Hi to everyone else who stops by.  Have a good day.

Good Afternoon -

Just chillin'. . . 

I'm on Bereavement time, which is nice and much-needed. Yesterday and today was all about contacting family, friends and churches with regards to the funeral arrangements (date, time & place, etc.).

Just re-connected with one cousin whom I haven't talked to in decades. She's older than me and, apparently, took care of me when I was a baby. (It was weird typing that, by the way! L O L!) It was a great conversation. We spent close to 1 1/2 hours talking and catching each other up on life, the universe and everything.

My plans for the rest of the day is to work on, and hopefully finish, this one instrumental composition that I started last month. 

Otherwise, I fluctuate between being sad to being numb. 

I'll be back later to read and respond to posts. Thank you for allowing me to vent, and write, and process thoughts and feelings.

Peace to you all. . . 

Ted

I won't see step-Mom until her birthday on Monday. I am sending her those big chocolate dipped strawberries to share on Sunday. I've sent the to her for two previous birthdays when she lived in the resort like complex.

I posted about a wonderful gift my Daddy gave me a few years ago. Here it is:

Hullo, 

Decent day at work, busy, but not crazy. Weather is still sunny but rain moves in tomorrow. We grilled steaks and fresh asparagus last night. 

Thank you Ted, for sharing a little piece of your dad with us. Nice to read that you are taking bereavement leave. 

Best wished to step mom, Herring. I do like those strawberries. 

I too, loathe talking on the phone, but that is about 50% of my job. Sigh. 

Webinar starting soon, ta

Oh, Ted, we are all thinking of you and your family.

By the way, who is the adorable dark-haired baby in the video? I think mom had long, dark hair too.

Too cute!!!!

Rest, my friend.

I am LOVING this new book: A Year Of Living Danishly.

So fascinating.

Danes don't appreciate an overachiever.

If you work late, you will be given leaflet on time management.

And they recycle everything!

The author is funny.

Her husband is working for Lego, so she just refers to him as Legoman.

Fun book.

I think you'll like it, herring.

Let me know when you start reading it.

I am also loving the Libby app. So easy to checkout a book.

I looked up the Libby app site. I have no need for a smart phone, and no desire for another expense. I do have a library card so will ask at the library about it first. If they don't know how to do it without an app I will try to contact them.
